Abstract: Teaching with the blended learning method has many supporters in the academic circles, as it emphasises the key role of the teacher (mentor) in the learning process, and fits well with the idea of the life-long learning. The volatility of materials and the continuous evolution of tools and distance teaching and learning portals must involve a continuous improvement of ICT competences among people involved in teaching with this method. This article discusses selected aspects of preparing and teaching classes and evaluating students' knowledge in teaching with the use of the blended learning method, with a special consideration of ICT competences necessary in this respect. Moreover, the authors present certain issues which are frequently less known to academic teachers but would significantly facilitate and streamline their work, such as: virtual seminars, leading project groups, distributing information via a portal, organisational consultation tools, etc.
